the colour of the uniforms is grey not green unfortunatly - i only think tarkin and yularen were worth getting, although the sculpts are brilliant

They look pretty green to me. Certainly not as grey as Veers, Ozzel, and Jerjerrod there.

Now I wanna get this set even more! Awesome pics! And, uh, love the Bail Organa head of the Tarkin body to create a new officer. I guess Bail is a baddie after all!

So it comes with Evolutions Vader now?!? Sweet! Just have to substitute the ANH Tin Vader instead
Nice to see they also updated the officers' blasters to OT E-11s instead of PT DC-15s.

Yes, several E-11's will be nice as these will go to my troops, officers have no need for these, that is why you have stormtroopers.

Looking at the pics, i regret even more the lack of knees articulation. I'll get this set as the sculpts are awesome but i'll throw the box away and forget about the scene they are taken from.

Im happy about the cardboard packaging with the table even though I still hope they make the table and chairs later.
Ill customize my own figures to make them sit.

Is it confirmed that these are the ones they come with? I know they're in the picture, but the package was arranged for the photos.

Thanks for the photo's Tarkin!

Ah nice! thanks for all the images. I hope my set comes in soon. I am stoked as hell about it.

Same here...I actually wish this one was shipping now from EE, instead of the Republic Commando Squad (which I'm still waiting for-going on 4 days after my card has been debited with no signs of it happening anytime soon
).

I still say they should've given the smaller, more "officer-esque" pistols that Tarkin, Piett, Thrawn, and Motti had in POTF2.

Those pistols would've needed some updated sculpts, though... way too "POTF2". But otherwise, yes, these officers shouldn't have the E-11s OR the more-inaccurate DC-15s.

I know, I got my shipping confirmation at the beggining of the week and now it's definately going to after Christmas that I get it. How the hell does it take something more than a day to get here from California.

Hopefully everyone else will get theirs a bit earlier as well. Really want to get my hands on this one soon.

The charge for the Death Star Briefing set showed up in my pending items on my bank account today, so this thing has to be getting close to shipping! That 1/17 date looks just about right.

Well, I checked my bank account after hearing EE was showing them in stock, and sure enough I was showing a hold of $46.44 for them.

Hopefully it won't take them another week to get them shipped to me (after the funds were debited in full), like it happened with my Republic Commando Squad...

I was thinking the same thing - always seems to be the case with EE - they'll bill you as soon as they're in the door, but then it takes a while before they're shipped.

Not that they're going to screw me, but it's not the most efficient operation...

I've always thought that with preoders your card isn't billed until the item is actually shipped?

That is correct. They won't charge your card till they actually have them in hand, but apparently they will debit the funds a few days before they ship them. I pre-ordered back in August, and was pre-authorized (not debited in full) today.

Unless it's TRU.com, where they billed me for the Commemorative Soundwave right after I ordered it, then put it on backorder until God knows when. Ridiculous.

I actually wish online stores would charge my card when I ordr it. That's when I have the funds for Pete's sake. Who knows what will be in my account six months down the road.

I got an email from them telling me my credit card was declined (I had the wrong exp. date and called and fixed it).

I hope that means it'll go out soon.

This set appears! The paint job of the figures is not that good and you have to be picky when choosing your set

Anyone think that it is possible to dremel out the old POTF Tarkin head to fit on the new body? I like that head sculpt much more than the new one and would prefer to swap them out.
